I'm not quite sure if this is the correct place, but it seems the most likely place (apologies if it isn't).
So I am about to embark on a project, and was wondering if anyone knows a good place, or a good way of going about, finding user based feedback on specific genre (I'm making a rogue like) i.e. from a focus group.
How many people will be classed as accurate data?
hmm... I'm finding it hard to put into words, but I want to create my own survey and distributing it to as many of my target audience as possible. Does anyone know a good place, rather than spamming it all over the internet.
Same for play testing, I know everyone loves a free beta build, but is there any methods of getting real data from them? not just
this game sucks!
I understand this is looking a tad too far in the future, but no harm in asking
I don't mind spending a little money, but as with all things in this world, free is the magic number.
Thanks for any advice you can give
